Prosecutors were surprised an attorney charged with spitting on a police officer did not plead guilty Monday, Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.

Attorney Lewis B. Moon, 45, faces a felony charge for spitting on a police officer and misdemeanor counts of impersonating a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and actual physical control of a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

He was scheduled for a plea and sentencing Monday.

Instead, he chose to stick with his not-guilty plea.

Moon and attorneys from both parties met in District Judge Kenneth Watson's chambers for 30 minutes Monday afternoon to discuss the case. Afterward, Watson scheduled the case for trial on Nov. 14.

Moon and his attorney declined to comment Monday.
